SUMMIT, NJ - In what has become a Hilltop City holiday giving tradition, the Eighth Annual Frozen Turkey Food Drive is ready to roll -- literally -- into Summit. The event, which takes place from 1-4 p.m. at the Summit Diner, benefits the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
 
Frozen turkeys, canned foods, and monetary donations are welcome.
 
Spearheaded by Other Fellow First Chairman Brett Haire, the event asks the City of Summit to help New Jersey families in distress around Thanksgiving and, each year, residents have turned out in force to share their generosity with the less fortunate, contributing more than 20 tons of turkeys, more than 12 tons of groceries, and approaching $100,000 in cash.
 
 
For the second consecutive year, a fun Turkey Bicycle Ride through Summit and Chatham -- beginning in front of Hilltop Bicycles, stopping at Kings Food Market on Springfield Avenue, and finishing at the Summit Diner -- will be held.
 
Riders are asked to bring $20 to purchase a turkey at Kings, and will receive a free, commemorative T-Shirt, with warm drinks and snacks waiting for the riders at the Diner "finish line."
 
Riders, who must be 18 years of age or older, can register at bikereg.com, should bring a backpack to transport their turkey, and are reminded to wear a helmet and weather-appropriate clothing. The ride begins at 10 a.m. at 314 Springfield Avenue. At 10:30 a.m., an indoor spin class option, at Momentum Cycling and Fitness, will also be held..
 
Interested parties who would like to make a monetary donation, but are unable to do so on November 22, can drop-off checks -- made payable to the Other Fellow First Foundation -- at the Summit Diner, or mail them to:
 
Brett Haire
47 Summit Avenue
Summit, NJ
07901 
 
For more information on the Other Fellow First Foundation and further event details, visit summitdiner.org.
 
The Summit Diner is located at 1 Union Place.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
